We had a wonderful week in Art Enrichment learning about Impressionism. We finger painted some beautiful paintings in the style of famous Brooklyn painter Iris Scott. This week in Adventures in Literacy we talked about letters and their sounds! We focused on beginning sounds and used our mystery boxes. In Cooking Enrichment we made delicious pancakes from scratch measuring and adding the ingredients, cracking the eggs and mixing. They were delicious served with sausage and syrup. We also talked about family style eating and table manners.In Music and Movement we continued learning rhythm using our rhythm sticks and parading through the school. We listened to and made harmonicas on Friday. We had so much fun we will do it again on Tuesday! In STEM we explored the 5 senses. We smelled and tasted different items, such as basil, peppermint and cinnamon. We also tried to guess what was in the bag by using our sense of touch.
After going to Community Nursery School myself almost 30 years ago and having so many fun and loving memories there… when it came time to send my children to preschool I knew exactly where they would be going. My daughter is a recent “graduate” from the preK Monday-Friday class with all five afternoon enrichments. I currently have a son in the young Learners class, and have another little one who will be starting next September. We can’t say enough nice things about the staff and teachers at CNS. They show you nothing but love, care and smiles from the minute the greet you in the parking lot (valet service!!!!!). We look forward to more art work, learning and laughter with our CNS family.
